Extra-Curricular Drama

We believe that our girls gain much from taking part in drama and theatre activities: they acquire new knowledge and expertise, as well as developing self-awareness, group skills and confidence. Below are some of the extra curricular drama activities we are proud to offer.

Middle School Drama Clubs

Led by Sixth Formers, these clubs are extremely popular with girls from Years 7 - 9. The clubs produce two very entertaining and original evening workshop-style shows for parents each year.

Twilight Drama Workshops

We offer girls in Year 10 the opportunity to acquire GCSE drama skills in these after-school sessions.

Short Courses in Lighting, Sound and Makeup

These offer girls the chance to develop their interests in design aspects of theatre.

Theatre Company Workshops

We regularly invite companies such as the English Touring Theatre and the Manchester Actors' Company into school.

Joint School Productions

Recent productions include: Durrenmatt's "The Visit", "Little Shop of Horrors", "Hamlet", "Les Misérables", Aristophanes' "The Frogs", ‘’We Will Rock You’ and a modern interpretation of Molière’s ‘The Hypochondriac’.
